If you are looking for a broad overview of your options for living, working, retiring, or just getting residency abroad, this book is for you.

I took out as many books as I could find on this and similar topics and this is the best one I found. The information is interestingly laid out, the book is easy to navigate, and I really liked the stories of expats included throughout the book.

Don't expect this book to give you every detail about immigration to an individual country, but do expect it to tell you what kind of visas are offered and where to get started.

Loved it!

I was really shocked with how comprehensive this book is. Tons of great information, some of the most valuable coming from those who have moved and their true experiences. There are also tons of great references, links to web sites, organizations. I learned a lot and this will be a great reference tool for a long time, I am so glad I purchased it! It gave me hope and insight that while the United States is a wonderful country, there are also many other interesting places to live. Excellent work to the author!

This is a great reference book if you are looking to get out. It seems to hit on the most popular concerns for people (currency, language, freedoms, crime, etc) and even tells about socioeconomic concerns (abortion, gun laws, homosexual behaviors, etc). I do wish there was more info on other nations, but the top 60 countries that are covered seem to be good choices. It does NOT tell you how to get out or things to pack or the process of leaving, etc. It DOES, however, help you decide where to go and why. I enjoy the little stories given by people who live in the countries listed.
Overall, a refreshing book that gives one reason to research leaving.

The pro's of this book are that it covers a lot of the basics and provides an essential checklist of what you need to do. The argument that this data can be found online cannot be denied, but the purpose of a book like this is to consolodate that data. Sure, it can be found online, but if you don't know where to look or what all you need to look for, this book provides that checklist, so to speak.
My issue with the book though is that some of the information about countries appears to be based on old stereotypes, incorrect information or just flat out lack of research. For example, the book list top 10 terrorist hot spots for 2010. Not only is this list dated and incorrect, it actually list Russia in the top 10. Russia is considered one of the lowest risk countries in the world for terrorism and has never been a terror hotspot. I'm starting to think the author thinks Russia is still under communist rule and that citizens are required to report to Lenin labor camps. That Russian children are eating by the infestation of vodka drinking bears. Meanwhile Syria has been a terror hot spot for more than a decade and is not on this list. Libya, another one that has been a hot spot for several decades, not on the list. Another, Thailand, not a terrorist hot spot, yet on this books list of terror hot spots. Just some really bad information here. This type of gross misinformation makes me wonder how accurate the other info is.

Pretty pedestrian. If you want to know about how to approach and solve the big issues (banking, visas, health insurance, and housing), you'll be disappointed..

I haven't finished reading this so I have to say that I may have to add to this reveiw but this should be a start.

this book explores all the traditional areas of expatriates, but there are a couple of added extras! First, it begins with expats from different areas actually commenting on their experiences. It is not limited to the authors experiences alone.

This book also divides up by areas and includes a section of Europe. Most books no2wadays cover only those folks living in China, South or Central America, or New Zealand. And France is one of the most economical of places to live if you move to the south!

Get it, read it, enjoy it and then make your decision!

I have only had a chance to scan through the book so far. I find the content to exceptionally thorough, well thought out and researched. The book covers important general topics and provides specific information on many of the leading countries often heard of as retirement/expat destinations. If your goal is to retire or move overseas, this book appears to be a necessary read. Quality of the book itself is excellent and strikes me as book that will stand up to a lot of use and wear.

Very complete and well organized! Covers all the important topics, and enables you to filter quickly down to a few prime relocation candidates, depending upon your specific needs and preferences. Witty and humorous commentary as well. Easy to read.
